Stem Cells: Controversy at the Frontiers of Science provides a clear explanation of just what stem cells are - what the subtle differences are in the cells upon which most debate is focused - and why they are important for medical research. It explains how Australia found itself in the forefront of stem cell research, leading even the United States. But what is the story behind the headlines? Are stem cells the potential miracle cure-all that researchers would have us believe, solving problems from the search for donor organs to curing diseases such as Parkinsons and even cancer and dementia? And even if all the promises can be fulfilled, is it worth opening the potential Pandora's box of ethical problems? What is motivating the lobby groups for and against? Dr Elizabeth Finkel takes a clear-eyed look at the science, the ethics, the politics, the economics, the spin and the future.
